Why do you homeschool?
I've met more and more homeschool parents lately. I have to admit I kind of like the idea of getting to teach my kids, but I also really like the idea of Avery's first day of school, lol!
Anyway, if you homeschool why did you decide to try it and when? I've heard about religious reasons or living to far from the nearest public school, but that's it. Why did you choose it?
Our school district is one where they can still go in for extra curricular activities or certain classes, so if there is something we decide we can't do at home, we're covered.
I also like the idea that my kids could move at their own pace through school. Everyone learns so differently and I like that they could find what works for them.
Our issue is financial unfortunately. My husbands salary isn't enough so I'm doing freelance work to try and make ends meet. It's just really hard to make enough when I'm constantly interrupted by little ones. When they're in school I'll have a solid chunk of time to work. If they we're homeschooled I'd have to put my attention toward that and I'd get even less billable time.
If something changes in the future and we could afford for me not to work if totally consider homeschooling though!
